Egypt's IT market bounced back from a slowdown at the height of political crisis in 2014 and2015, and we expect strong growth to occur over the medium term. However, the growth is expected to beslightly slower than it was immediately after the crisis when pent-up demand pushed growth even higher. Acombination of population and income growth are positives for the retail market where there is still scopefor vendors to target increasing PC penetration. In the software and services segment growth potential iseven faster as the public and private sector modernises. However, there is a downside, primarily frompolitical and security risks that could potentially undermine the economic growth trajectory.
